Hellos and goodbyes: Nuggets about the Triangle food scene

Posted By on Thu, Oct 31, 2013 at 4:04 PM

When I look at my monthly bank statement and see how many transactions say “Wine Authorities,” well, let’s just say vino is one of my favorite food groups. Now the Durham-based wine store (2501 University Drive) is just weeks away from opening its Raleigh location in the Oakwood/Mordecai neighborhood, 213 Franklin St., near Escazu, Yellow Dog Bread Company, Slingshot Coffee and Piebird. So, pie, coffee, chocolate, pastries and wine—all in the same few blocks? Keep up with what’s happening at Speaking of wine, Rue Cler, one of the original anchors of downtown Durham’s restaurant scene, has been sold...

David Tanis at Fearrington Thursday for One Good Dish

Posted By on Wed, Oct 23, 2013 at 8:40 AM

As a former chef at the legendary Chez Panisse, David Tanis was an expert at choreographing sumptuous meals that built from course to course. It’s a perspective he used to great effect in his first two books, A Platter of Figs and Other Dishes and Heart of the Artichoke and Other Kitchen Journeys, the latter of which was nominated for a James Beard Award.

Posted By on Wed, Oct 16, 2013 at 4:05 PM

Raleigh Chef Chad McIntyre surprised patient fans on Tuesday by announcing that the long-delayed opening of his bigger-and-better The Market Restaurant has been cancelled. “Ever since I put it on Facebook, I’ve heard from all these people who say they would have given money to make it happen,” McIntrye says with a wry chuckle. “I wish they spoke up nine months ago.” McIntrye closed the popular 1,600-square-foot neighborhood eatery last March.

Four Triangle food trucks featured in new book

Posted By on Fri, Oct 4, 2013 at 8:51 AM

In The Southern Food Truck Cookbook (Nelson Books, 260 pages), Heather Donahoe roams below the Mason-Dixon Line, where she seeks out not haute cuisine for the white tablecloth crowd, but innovative street food for those of us who feel more at home using paper napkins. While the Triangle boasts dozens of food trucks—and Donahoe, preparing for an influx of angry emails, acknowledges this is a sampling, not a comprehensive list—four make the cut: Triangle Raw Foods, Chirba Chirba, Porchetta and Big Mike’s BBQ. In addition to brief personal stories about the chefs—many of them, having left unsatisfying jobs, are on...
